JUST now the diplomats have
the center of the stage. In
the last week the newspapers
have chronicled the return of
the French Ambassador and
Mme. Jusserand, who have
been spending their holiday in
France, the Belgian Ambassa
dor and Baroness de Cartier,
who have been abroad since
June, and of Mme. de Mathieu,
wife of the Chilean Arobassa
dor. She had remained on for
a few weeks in Paris after the
return of her husband, who
sailed with her in mid-summer,
had been called back to this
The Minister of Switzerland and
Mme. Marc Peter landed in New
York yesterday, after a six weeks'
holiday In Switzerland, and pre
sumably are coming at one* to
Washington. The Wallenbergs?
Sweden?are expected about No
vember 1, and the Blbeecoe?Ru
mania?and Dr. Stepanek. the
Czechoslovak minister, within the
next week or two.
Moreover, there has been s lot
of entertaining either to wel
come newcomers to the corps ?r
to speed Its departing members.
And diplomatic changes, actual or
potential, are coming in for a lot of
discussion. Two new envoys of
ambassadorial rank are expected
before long since the Argentine
Ambassador. Dr. Thomas A. Le
Breton, resigned some months
ago and It Is becoming increas
ingly evident that the health or
the Ambassador of Japan, Baron
Shldehara. will not permit him
to resume his duties here. But
so far the most important dlplo
matic appointments are the nam
ing of Jonkeer Dr. A. D. C. de
Oraeff, now Minister of the
Netherlands at Tokyo, as Minister
to the United States and the
selection of a new Polish
Minister. Dr. Wroblewskl, to suc
ceed Prince Csslmlr Lubomlrskl.
? ? ?
*J?HE arrival of Dr. de Oraeff
will be an event of no little
interest to society, for he has
a charming wife and four
daughters?two' of them of
debutante age?as well as s small
son. The eldest girl Is married
to a young Dutch soldier who
Is at present military attache
of the Netherlands legation In
Tokyo. Washington had a brief
glimpse of Jonkheer and Mme.
de Oraeff In 1>1S. when they
l>assed through this country on
their way from the Orient to
Holland and saw just enough of
them to wanjt to know them
better. However, at that time.
I believe, they had only their
two youngest children with them,
the elder girls having been sent
home a few months earlier.
Jonkeer de Oraeff and his fam
ily have spent many years in th.j
Orient, as he was long president
of the councfl of the Dutch Blast
Indies?second In command to
the governor general?and Mme.
de Oraeff la the daughter of a
former governor general. The
new minister worked up to this
most important poet through the
various grades of the Dutch colon
ial establishment and reached this
goal at a surprisingly early age
?l^e Is now only forty-eeven or
forty-eight. In 111! he went home
for a year and then received his
appolntmsnt as minister t>.
Both Jonkheer and Mme. de
Oiaeff speak- fluent Bnglfsh?In

J. C. A. Everwljn. who wem
home last spring on leave?one
haa learned to distrust diplomatic
?leave of abaence"?and later
sent in hia resignation. Dr. Ever

about a year ago whet) the arm
conference was convening' and
was very much in evidence so
cially as well aa politically dur
ing the deliberations. Early In
the winter he went home to a*
tend his daughter s wedding ant!
on hia return he brought Mmo
Everwijn with him. I think th<
minister liked Washington?and
certainly Washington took a
great fancy to him?but It wa?
no aecret that Mme. EverwlJ.i
was not aa contented here as he
husband and perhaps?well. ?<
any rate, they are not to return
? ? ?
I^HE announcement of the ap
pei fitment of Jonkheer d->
Ormeff put a Quietus on certain
rumors which had cropped up
from time to time?one insisting
the good looking Jonkheer d*
Beaufort, who was charge d'af
faires here for so long, and wno
is now Netherlands minister to
Greece, was to come back her*
and the other to the effect thai
the present, charge d'affaires. Dr
J. B. Hubracht was to be promoted
to ministerial riflk and assigned
to Waahington.
The latter seemed improbable on
Its face, for a diplomat is almo^r
always transferred when given ?
minister's portfolio and beside*
Washington Is too important ?
post to fall to the lot of an envoy
so newly risen from the rank*
The same thing applies in some
degree to the Que of Jonkheer d*
Beaufort, and altogether It would
seem that in both instances th?
wish was father to the thought.
The Hubrechts. by the way, are
staying on through the autumn
at Mt. Eagle, the historic o!d
Place near Alexandria, which they
have occupied for the summer
months. They have a new little
daughter, a month or so old, and
the baby is thriving so in her pre*
ent environment that they hate to
bring her into town.
